These are a lot of the things we do as high school coaches, but now they’re hearing it from guys at the elite level and hopefully it pays off.”

The Cavaliers also had the opportunity to watch the Dolphins practice and meet with current players on the field, including Dolphins running backs Frank Gore and Buddy Howell who are graduates of Coral Gables. Following practice, the athletes had lunch provided by Publix.

“It’s fantastic, especially for these guys being able to see Frank Gore knowing that he is from the school that they’re in right now and seeing the success that he’s had, being able to see his career. … Being from Coconut Grove, which a lot of our players are, it’s great,” Pollard said.

Most of you know me as The Prodoucher FunGus, but my government name is Gustavo A. Chacon. Born and raised in the 305! I say Miami sports fans should be grateful for what we've been able to experience, at least in my lifetime. Pretty well rounded in the major sports, but baseball is probably my weakest subject. Doesn't stop me from writing about it! Either way, I find it pointless to memorize every sports stat since the beginning of time when I can just look it up, so don't expect me to drop some knowledge unless it's useful in the real world. However, I'm not afraid to tell you why you're opinion is 100% wrong, lest we agree, of course. Wanna get into it? Argue with me @lemoncityfungus. It'll be fun!
